Echostage, DC’s largest concert venue and Club Glow’s home, turns 3 years old this month! Boasting its D&B Audiotechnik V Series sound system, LED visuals, lasers and CO2 cannons, Echostage is a guaranteed awesome time, every time. Since 2012, the venue has hosted some of the world’s top DJs such as Above and Beyond, Hardwell, Calvin Harris, Tiesto etc. with Kaskade and Disclosure in this fall’s upcoming lineup. 

This weekend is dedicated to celebrate Echostage, both of its 60ft bars (open bar 9-10pm!!!) — and to dancing the weekend away with a clear view (no matter where you are) of the stage!

Friday, September 18th Echoversary welcomes Tchami and Don Diablo! Here’s a few fun facts about the two who are getting the weekend-long party started! Happy Echoversary!

Don Diablo and Tchami.

Tchami

Real name: Martin Bresso
  • The name Tchami was given to him while traveling in Africa.
  • Created the new genre future house — on accident! Future House was used as a defiant joke. There were no initial intentions of launching a new genre. 
    • To Tchami, “future house is about making music blended with something that doesn’t exist in this genre yet”
  • Inspired most by Parisian DJs DJ Mehdi and Point Point 10694209_10154752456815713_3978628135038725099_o
  • Helped co-write 2013’s hit “Turn Down for What” alongside his friend and fellow Parisian DJ, DJ Snake


  • 2013 Tchami’s remix of Janet Jackson’s “Go Deep” got him noticed
  • Released his first original track “Promesses” in 2014, followed by a music video in 2015:

 

  • Interviews with Tchami are only done through emails.
  • He wears the cleric outfit simply because he likes it and feels it is “classy and spiritual too that could fit with the vibe of my music”.

Tchami is not really a priest.
